Learning through play in the digging area at Milton Nursery.

In consultation with the children, the ELC staff in Milton Nursery have developed a wonderful digging area. Most of the items have been sourced through donations from local companies. Some funding from the Co-operative grant which was awarded last year was used and staff and children were very grateful for the help from volunteers when laying the path.

It really is a great place for the children to play! So much learning is taking place as the children play with a wide range of loose parts and their learning is enhanced by the very positive interactions taking place between the staff and the children.

Photos of the children playing in their new area have been shared with families through the Seesaw app and the feedback has been excellent. Families are very grateful to be able to see what their children are getting up to when they cannot access the nursery.
